GRIT

Over time, grit is what separates fruitful lives from aimlessness. –  John Ortberg

According to the book Grit to Great, written by Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval, success depends on the acronym of G.R.I.T..

G : Guts. You must be courageous in facing your challenges. You should not back down upon the first sight of obstacles. Be brave and take the bull by its horn.

R : Resilience. When things get tough, well, you just have to keep on going. Persevere on. One will always fail. Success belongs to those brush it off, learn from it and stand up once again.

I : Initiatives. Be a self-starter. Don’t wait until you are told to do something. Don’t always do the same thing. Be creative. View the problems with a new pair of lens, with a new mindset.

T : Tenacity. You have to be focused. Focus on the problem on hand. Don’t get lost in every and any other happenings around you. Stay focused and get the things done.

How do you apply G.R.I.T. in your life?
